Sinisa Mihajlovic tried 4-3-3 in training yesterday as he apparently sees no fitting partner for Carlos Bacca now.
The injury of M’Baye Niang, who will today undergo surgery, complicated things for coach Sinisa Mihajlovic in attack as Carlos Bacca is the only fully-healthy striker currently available on the squad.
Mario Balotelli and Jeremy Menez both showed against Sassuolo that they are not quite in their best condition and Luiz Adriano has spent the last weeks out of action and will return to the bench on Sunday (15:00 CET kickoff).
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier this week that Mihajlovic could try Jack Bonaventura in attack alongside Bacca but according to today’s edition of the pink newspaper the real alternative to current tactical solution of 4-4-2, is switching back to 4-3-3 with the Colombian as a sole striker.
The Serbian coach tried both 4-4-2 with Bacca-Balotelli and 4-3-3 with Bonaventura-Bacca-Honda in attack in training yesterday. GdS underlines that it’s still likelier to see 4-4-2 but the change of system could solve the problem in attack of Mihajlovic, who also has Kevin-Prince Boateng as an attacking option although the former Ghana international hasn’t really been impressive so far.
Riccardo Montolivo is expected to miss this Chievo match as well and that means that if Milan go 4-3-3 then Juraj Kucka and Andrea Bertolacci will be accompanied by one of Jose Mauri and Poli.
